  1. 1. Functional modelling of the human timing mechanism

    Author : Guy Madison; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; Brain mechanisms; Brownian motion; drift; dynamical systems; fractal; human; Gaussian noise; Hurst exponent; time; time series analysis; timing; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : Behaviour occurs in time, and precise timing in the range of seconds and fractions of seconds is for most living organisms necessary for successful interaction with the environment. Our ability to time discrete actions and to predict events on the basis of prior events indicates the existence of an internal timing mechanism. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring models of time processing : effects of training and modality, and the relationship with cognition in rhythmic motor tasks

    Author : Olympia Karampela; Guy Madison; Linus Holm; Fredrik Ullén; Simon Grondin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; timing; motor timing; cogntion; dedicated models; intrinsic models; timing variability;

    Abstract : Timing can be defined as the ability to perceive temporal sequences and regulate timed behaviors. As in other animals, our ability to make accurate time estimations is crucial in order to accomplish several activities. Organisms can process time over a wide range of durations ranging from microseconds to days. READ MORE

  3. 3. Forecasting myocardial infarction and subsequent behavioural outcomes

    Author : John Wallert; Erik Olsson; Claes Held; Guy Madison; Viktor Kaldo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis is compiled from four studies dealing with the prediction of myocardial infarction (MI) and some associated risk behaviours post MI.Study 1 extends the field of possible psychosocial stress-triggering of MI to Sweden, and to the phenomenon of temporal crests and troughs in national MI rates.

  4. 4. Tearing mode dynamics in the presence of resonant magnetic perturbations

    Author : Richard Fridström; Per Brunsell; Marco Cecconello; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Tearing mode; plasma; fusion; reversed-field pinch; RFP; magnetic; confinement; resonant; perturbation; magnetohydrodynamics; MHD; EXTRAP T2R; Madison Symmetic Torus; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Magnetically confined fusion (MCF) plasmas are typically subject to several unstable modes. The growth of one mode can limit the plasma energy confinement and might cause a termination of the plasma. Externally applied resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs) are used to control and to mitigate some of the unstable modes. READ MORE
